Class Description
During the masterclass, Arno Schuitemaker takes you into the world of his new work If You Could See Me Now that premieres in December 2017. 
If You Could See Me Now is a work for three dancers. Created in close collaboration with a composer and light designer, the performance forges an experience of ongoing change and transformation that excites, challenges and bewilders the senses. 

Arno Schuitemaker teaches how he lets his dancers coordinate movements, how to create a state of presence while performing, and how to stay grounded during the height of physical intensity.
